WONDER 2023 will take place from Thursday 19 October to Sunday 5 November 2023, from Tuesday to Sunday each time.
The festival takes a look at the future with innovative ideas from designers, artists, entrepreneurs, students, citizens… And we want to see that translated into your proposal.We focus on these creative fields: design, arts, film, music and literature. Here, optimism and positivism are central. We believe that creative minds come up with solutions to our societal challenges and want to convey this faith in the future to our visitors and thereby inspire and enthuse them.
Anyone can submit a proposal for WONDER: both as an individual, student, organisation, company, or school, … both from Belgium and internationally. This can be about a project, exhibition, installation, event, workshop, activity, etc.
Ideas that are still looking for a connection with other partners can also be submitted. We encourage cooperation between different parties.
We aim for a mainly free programme (although events and workshops can be offered for a fee).
The Budafabriek will again be the main location, but we wish to include several other venues in the city centre. If you wish to participate with a location, you are responsible for that location as well as its permanence. If you do not yet have a location, this can also be specified in the registration form and we will look for your ideal spot.
WONDER addresses a very broad target group: from secondary and higher education classes to architects and designers, from companies to policy-makers, families and interested citizens.
